Hello today we have Qcache_non_cached and Qcache_queries_in_cache, about queries in cache we don't know what queries are in cache, and about non cached we don't know why they aren't cached, could we have any think like


and maybe an log about queries that aren't cached? or new status variables like


with it we could know how change query_cache_min_res_unit and query_cache_limit variables

How to repeat:
show status like 'Qcache_non_cached_%'
show queries in cache

Suggested fix:
new status variables
new log files

Thank you for a reasonable feature request. Some way to look at query cache content is surely needed.

Any idea when it will be added?
show queries in cache could be:

id?   query_string    mem_size     create_datetime    hits

Bug #24467 was marked as a duplicate of this one.

what about see queries that was not cache because low size or very big size?
with this we could set query cache variables better to fit our queries that aren't beeing cached

hi guys, 5 years ago when i was at university... hehehehe

i was thinking about query cache yesterday and remembered this post...

any idea?

obs: show queries in cache, MUST lock query cache (no dirty reads)

non cached queries could be put in a log file, or just a variable counter (today implemented and working)

Incidently this feature was developed by my 14 year old intern and then discarded because of lack of interest. I find that amusing.

https://github.com/mcshadow/mysql_query_cache this plugin might be useful. Unfortunately its description available only in Russian on rus it resource :) but C++ is C++ and you can easily test it by yourself. Hope this helps.

MySQL will no longer invest in the query cache, see:
